PESHAWAR: Administration of University of Peshawar (UoP) has claimed it has received millions of monetary losses due to illegal outsiders residing in different hostels of varsity who were involved in selling out hostel cards.
Briefing the media men at guest house of UoP, provost of varsity, Saifullah Khan informed that the administration has received monetary losses of Rs around 20 millions owing to outsiders who were reportedly involved in selling hostel cards among students and other irrelevant persons. The outsiders, he alleged had also earned more than Rs 30 million illegally to give hostels cards to people.
Flanked by chief proctor Nadeem Azam, deputy director Gohar Rehman, deputy superintendent of police Fazal Rabi and station house police Saeed Khan, UoP provost informed about the hostel cleanup operations initiated against outsiders on 09 and 16 July, 2018 and saying the alleged persons had accommodated hundreds of students illegally in each room. The overcrowded students accommodated in hostels were frequently using air-coolers and air-conditions which caused millions of financial losses to varsity in terms of power bills, he revealed.
Mr Saifullah also apprised the media with regard to outsiders who had adjusted students in hostels unlawfully in previous years and presented their documents containing CNICs, service cards and others. He came hard on Mutahida Talba Mahaz (MTM) and saying it did all illegal activities in hostels only to take advantage of complications of students.
He informed the media about renovation in hostels, facilities being provided to students and security measures taken by varsity administration for safeguarding students at hostels. The students residing in different hostels of UoP have expressed satisfaction over actions being taken by administration and police personnel against illegal persons, he added.
